Look...this is the top half of a mini egg carton. Can't let any part of these cuties go to waste and I only needed the bottom half for another project. So why not fill it with cards?! Several 3 x 3 cards and envelopes to be exact. Fun huh?! 😊
After I created this little package a funny thing happened. I was placing the bunny inside and squeezed a little to hard and crushed it. Can you say hollow? 😳 The irony...my sentiment says "may all your chocolate be solid" 😆
On YouTube, Paper Smycho has a tutorial showing how to create Hershey's Nuggets wraps with the envelope punch board. It's a clever and easy way to wrap them. After wrapping two nuggets and using stamps from the Basket Bunch stamp set, I created a little basket with the Window Box Thinlits to hold them.
I've been looking through past Paper Pumpkin kits and realized they are filled with a variety of fun things I'd forgotten about. ☹️ I chose a cello bag and gold clip from my Filled With Love kit to create a St. Patrick's day treat. Maybe I should look through my kits every time I need a little inspiration. 😊
What do you think about a Window Box Easter Basket? Can't put much in it but it sure is cute and fun to make. I basically cut the window box in half, with the exception of the back piece. However, 🤔 even that can be cut off. Your choice!😊
The Many Happy Birthdays Paper Pumpkin has been very challenging for me. I don't plan on making the projects it was intended for, so I needed to think of new ideas. After lots of playing I finally came up with a couple of ideas. This one is a candy bar wrapper. I punched a hole in the top of the wrapper and put ribbon through it so it can be pulled out easier. The other project I created is a gift card holder I'll be posting later so stay tuned. 🙂
Don't you love the cheerful colors on this card? It screams "happy" 😊 The Cool Treats stamp set and Frozen Treats Framelits are so much fun and will be great for the summer months. Now if summer or at least warm weather would hurry and get here, I'd be as happy as this card. 😉
The mini egg cartons were a must when I saw them in the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog. I was especially delighted when I learned they could be colored! It only takes rubbing alcohol, a few drops of Stampin' ink refill and a Stampin' Spritzer. I filled my spritzer 2/3 of the way and added 7 drops of rose romance (retired) ink. I didn't get the coverage I wanted so I filled the spritzer a second time to get the color and coverage I was looking for. It's an easy process just make sure you have something under the carton to catch the over spray. ;)
